Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce for One

 
I’ve been hearing about this dish – how good it is and how simple it is to make. I finally made it and it’s tasty! You can top it over zoodles for a low-carb version or any other pasta. Add chicken or shrimp for more protein. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss
  • 1 tsp of Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp of Non-fat Greek Yogurt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Ground Pepper
  1. Put all the ingredients on top of your raw zoodles or cooked pasta.
  2. Heat for a minute in the microwave.
  3. Stir with the noodles. 
  4. Sprinkle another 1 tsp of Grated Parmesan Cheese over your dish.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

garlic_parm_chixMy kids LOVE Chicken Parmesan but I hate making it because it’s so time consuming and fatty when you have to fry it oil. Then I found this easy Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken on Allrecipes.com. I made some alterations to make it low-carb and gluten-free, and let me tell you, it turned out delicious! Simple to make, great flavor, and still has that great crunch! This has become a family favorite in our weekly dinner rotation. The kids, of course, have it with pasta and spaghetti sauce, but I really enjoy it by itself with some steamed spinach or grilled zucchini.

RECIPE

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 Tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a pie plate, mix the olive oil and garlic.
  3. In another pie plate, mix the almond meal, Parmesan cheese, basil, and pepper.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the oil mixture, then in the almond meal mixture.
  5. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish, and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
  6. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Miracle Noodles

Are you missing pasta? Then you’ll love Miracle Noodles. It’s ZERO calories, ZERO carbs, gluten-free, and soy-free. That’s why it’s a miracle. I had a chance to try Miracle Noodles, and let me tell you… They’re pretty good. I can’t even tell the difference between eating these noodles versus regular Asian noodles. The texture and taste (actually they have no taste) is very similar to Vietnamese vermicelli. You can eat them as a side dish with just about anything! It’s easy to prepare, too. Just rinse the noodles then blanch them in boiling water for one minute then drain.

The other night I stir-fried some green veggies (broccoli, romanesca and green beans) with shrimp and had a side of Miracle Noodles. Dinner (or lunch) is served! And it’s delicious and nutritious! I don’t miss rice at all with this stuff.
